While my earlier post on heaven spoke of the beauty of the new creation, the other aspect of heaven will be the excellent fellowship. Gone will be the things that so plague our fellowship on this side of glory: distrust, false motives, lies, sin, and all the other things that so encumber and dampen relationships. The fellowship of heaven will be marked by perfect love, love that is not self-centered, filled with pride, or ruled by selfish ambition. Paul reveals this perfect love to us in Philippians 2:

Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

Cloudhaven, when I visited many years ago, had that kind of fellowship.
